Arizona Bioethics Network is hosting its 11th Annual Conference on April 14th, 2023 on Zoom.
The presenters will be examining topics associated with neurodiversity and ethics. This includes looking historically at the position of neurodiversity in medicine, the ethics of diagnosis in searching for genetic causes, how there is a lack of neurodiverse perspective in research, and the need to consider lived experiences of populations to inform medical care. These topics help demonstrate how the focus on the treatment of the neurodiverse can make them vulnerable to stigmatization, inequalities in medical care, ineffective treatment/intervention, and involvement in biased research. This conference aims to invoke critical thinking about the ethical concerns associated with improper considerations of neurodiversity in medicine and how that can be changed to make space for those that are neurodiverse.
